Las Vegas – The celebrated music of ABBA returns to the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for an extraordinary weekend of performances when Jerry Greenberg presents adbacadabra – the ultimate ABBA tribute April 20 – 21.
The globally popular ABBA tribute show with 20 songs, creating 20 memories will have the audience dancing in the aisles. Driven by the dynamic musical vision of group founder Gary Raffanelli, a dead ringer for ABBA’s Benny Andersson, adbacadabra (pronounced ABBA-CADABRA) has become an entertainment sensation in its own right. The ensemble, which features Fred Sampson (Bjorn), Christine Shelton (Frida) and Raffanelli’s longtime musical partner Sandra Selby (Agnetha), has been a smash throughout the world.
“Adbacadabra made their debut at the LVH (formerly Las Vegas Hilton) back in 2009. We received an overwhelming response from the crowd then and look forward to a similar response in April,” said Rick White, Vice President of Brand Marketing and Entertainment. “It’s a fun and entertaining show and they really get the crowd moving.”
“A lot of shows that have included the music of ABBA in the past poke fun at their outfits and the music,” says Raffanelli, “but ours is unique because we believe the songs are great and we play and perform them with the integrity they deserve. We’re up there singing, dancing, laughing and having fun. The show has personality, we interact with each other and the band, and there is plenty of audience participation.”
“We picked all the hits to cover,” he says. “We perform them just like the original records. That was the hard part. ABBA was genius at putting together pop music. We got everything we could on the group and fine tuned the music and outfits down to the last minute detail.”
